Getting your heat ducts cleaned can be worth it, especially if you have allergies and you want to keep your heater system working in peak condition.
The need to get your ducts clean can depend on a variety of conditions. If you have pets, if you smoke in the house, if you have had recent renovations done, and also taking in the conditions of local weather and overall home cleanliness – a good thorough cleaning can be worth it for you.
A good cleaning doesn’t mean just sweeping through the ducts – it should include a cleaning of the coils and central air system. It should encompass every component that air passes over.
According to the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers, dirty blowers and coils can cut efficiency by almost half. If your components are weighed down by debris and dirt, then your system has to work even harder.
